I have an Epson C64 7yrs old won't accept black ink

I have an Epson C64 that I have had for about 7yrs, never had a minutes problem with it until now. I've run out of black ink and it doesn't seem to be accepting my replacement cartridges which the secretary at work always procures. I recently tried two without success and she recently got me another which has also been rejected it seems. None were Epson branded, the recent one was Inkrite. With the latter I managed to print off a black a poster - black on white but where there should have been black it was a bluey grey. I then tried a page with some printed letters on it to test and got nothing. The ink light on the left hand button flashes intermittently by the way. I have misplaced my instruction poster so I'm at a loss. Thanks Ernie Shackleton

How to turn off color ink in Epson Stylus R300


There is a place in the printer driver (epson part) that hays checkboxes for "color" and "Black & White". If you are trying to do this becasue you are out of one or more of the color inks, and can't print- you still won't be able to until you replace the empty ink(s), even though you told it black & White

Epson wont recognize black refill cartridge.


I'm assuming that you are probably using Non-Epson Ink Cartridges, because those are what normally cause that problem, with a printer not recognizing an installed ink cartridge. Unfortunately, there is no way to make your Epson Printer use or accept that Non-Epson Ink Cartridge, if it cannot actually recognize it. Its even possible that some Generic or Third-Party brands, may not always be recognized by the newer models of Epson Printers, because of the inexpensive [cheap] and or incompatable Electrical Chips that are mounted on the actual ink cartridge. Sometimes you will even get Error Messages up on your Monitors screen, telling you that you are actually using a Non-Epson Ink Cartridge, or that your printer cannot recognize the cartridge that you installed. Sometimes the Ink Level Indicator, on your Status Monitor, will not show an actual ink level, but may indicate a cartridge error or problem instead. Not all Generic or Third-Party ink & ink cartridges are made the same and none of them actually contain the right formulation of ink, for the Epson Printers [formula is patented by Epson Company]. Some are probably close and seem to be better than others, but some simply can clog-up or even damage the Printhead Assemblies on Epson Printers, or simply won't be accepted at all. Epson Ink Jet Printers are one of the few printers on the market that seem to have so many problems with non-manufactors inks, especially the newer models made in the last couple of years. Its because the Epson Printers use a completely different printhead inking system than most other brands of printers. Most, if not all of the other manufactors, use thermal or bubble jetprint heads and because the other brands use a totally different system, they don't seem to have as many problems using refilled inks or non-manufactor's ink cartridges. Printer manufacters do not make available their ink formulation and in most cases, the formulation is patented. Any difference in the ink formulation can actually cause clogging in the small printhead nozzles or damage other critical components. One individual printhead nozzle is so tiny, that it will not accept a human hair, so you can see why they can get clogged so easily, or even why the nozzles can be so easily damaged...Even if you were actually using a New-Epson Ink Cartridge, its always possible that you got a bad cartridge. At this point, the only thing I can suggest is that you try a different New-Epson Ink Cartridge, or at the very least, a different brand of Non-Epson Ink Cartridges and see if that helps.

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks


My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy

Trying to print black only document


the problem with this printer is that all the inks have to be at a usable ink level, if any one of them are below the acceptable amount it will not print in any colour at all not even black.
